Exhibit 34
Description:
NEED FOR STA

THE CURRENT STA EXPIRES OCTOBER 28 2020

THE STA EXTENSION IS REQUIRED DUE TO THE LOSS OF THE LICENSED TRANSMITTER SITE.

THE STATION CONSULTING ENGINEER, MORGAN BURROW, ADVISES THAT ALTHOUGH HE REQUIRES ADDITIONAL FIELD DATA, HE IS APPROACHING THE POINT OF WRAPPING UP MEASUREMENTS AND BLENDING THE 2014 AND NEWER FIELD MEASUREMENT DATA REQUIRED FOR THE FCC CP APPLICATION AND REQUESTS ADDITIONAL TIME TO COMPILE, TABULATE, AND PLOT A LARGE NUMBER OF MEASUREMENT POINT DATA REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE APPLICABLE CP APPLICATION. IN A NUMBER OF CASES, MEASUREMENTS HAVE BEEN DELAYED DUE TO A FEW SUBJECT CLOSELY-SPACED STATIONS OPERATING AT REDUCED POWER. MR. BURROW WOULD LIKE TO FURTHER CHECK THE MEASUREMENTS AROUND LEWISTOWN PA (THE BOTTOM OF THE N 180 BEARING TOWARD CARLISLE).

IN ADDITION, THE PANDEMIC HAS DISRUPTED SCHEDULES, CAUSED ONEROUS TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS WHICH HAVE HINDERED EFFORTS TO RELOCATE TO A PERMANENT FACILITY. UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHYL IS WORKING TO PREPARE THE REQUIRED FORM 301 APPLICATION AND RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS ADDITIONAL TIME TO ESTABLISH OPERATIONS FROM A PERMANENT LOCATION.

AN STA EXTENSION IS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST AS IT PERMITS THE STATION TO CONTINUE TO SERVE THE PUBLIC WITH AN IMPORTANT BROADCAST VOICE WHILE THE STATION SEARCHES FOR A VIABLE LICENSED TOWER SITE AND PREPARES TO RESUME LICENSED OPERATION.

THE STATION HAS RECEIVED NO INTERFERENCE COMPLAINTS.
